Blog, news and reviews from Snowdonia Fly Fishing Guides
Great! The weather has been brilliant for months and is again today but yesterday, the day I go fishing it's really grim, wet, misty, cold and windy. I wrap up warm and head off to the river figuring it would be a good day for some nymph fishing. How wrong was I. There was little or no surface activity so I tackle up with a French nymphing setup. After about an hour without a nibble I decided to change tactics and switched to a floating line and try spiders or dries.
The one thing that frustrates me at this time of year is the amount of dead leaves in and on the the water that get snagged on my flies (Does anyone have a suggestion as to how to stop catching them?). It doesn't matter if I fish nymphs, spiders or dries I still catch a load of leaves :0|
Anyway in spite of being inundated with dead foliage I finished the day with several grayling all caught on small dry flies.
